Oh my god reading both James books simultaneously might actually kill you! 7 Killings is the better book imo. They both sprawl, but BL,RW felt unfocused at times to me and the characters a little less vivid; though I'm looking forward to reading the sequel as the world is definitely enchanting. After reading it I picked up a copy of Maryse Condé's Segu but haven't started it yet, which might be up your alley too

Co-sign rob’s take on Marlon James. BL RW is good, but I’m ambivalent about committing to two tome-sized sequels. On the other hand, I couldn’t get enough of BHo7K.

I’d like to see these polls keep up at the same pace, going right into future years, with entirely speculative options.
